On September 14, 1995 an Economic Development Administration (EDA) Financial Assistance Award was made to the City of Albany to construct an Industrial Incubator to encourage the creation of jobs for low and moderate income persons by providing space conducive to the development of industrial businesses.  The City’s Industrial Incubator, located at 1536 Dougherty Avenue Albany Georgia, is a 30,000 square foot facility that includes warehouse, office space, shipping and receiving areas to accommodate one or more small industrial type businesses.

The Industrial Incubator is owned and managed by the City of Albany, Department of Community and Economic Development.  Currently, the Incubator is leased by Lawson Industries, Inc.  Information on Lawson Industries, Inc. may be found at
